I agree with the help, but the --file is just a kludge to be able to have a
low-level access to the database while still going through the normal
mythfill database processing. It is not meant for endusers and should be
replace with general non-hardcoded grabber support before mythtv 1.0.

QT doesn't mean X. Nobody ever wanted the backend to use X, not ever since
the frontend/backend split was initiated.
Suggestion (teensy weensy?) in return: read the archives for details about
future daemonizing of the backend... ;-)
